The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 21% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20.
The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern.
Overall, 45% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance. Fifty-five (55%) at least somewhat disapprove.
45% somewhat? Needs to drop to 33% !
I think he actually reached -10 right after Osama bin laden. Now it’s back to his usual territory.
Hey, Gallup has it down to 39!
They guy is an empty shell. He has no inner reservoir of political experience - NOR INTELLIGENCE (ala Clinton) - to turn himself around. He is a political buffoon that snookered less than 5% of the electorate to sneak into the WH.
HOW LOOOOOW CAN YOU GO?
That his approval is still this high is a testament to the degree to which our citizens are brain dead, and is frightening. I hear all these dim Dems like Debbie W-S spouting and spinning, and I wonder where in the h#!! they sprouted from.
He reached -7 a number of times in May. On June 9th he was -9. Then the floor fell out. Next day he was -15 and falling.
I don’t recall any major event happening around then, but I think the public looked at the economic numbers and is starting to realize the guy doesn’t know what he is doing and that his campaign promises were just “hope.”
Also, they are finally seeing he doesn’t have his heart in the job. His hints that one term might be OK with him and his family. Eighteen holes a day is starting to look pretty good to him.
He’s a lame duck.
Someday,someone, most likely after he has left office, will write the definitive study about him-and we will realize how he snookered a vast number of Americans. People on this site were discussing his left wing background months before the election. Oh, and the author or authors of this study will be one or more investigative reporters working for a non-USA newspaper or other type of media.
But with a campaign spending promise of One Billion Dollars Obama can give $100 each to 10 million people to vote
Or $100 each time someone votes...
Obama last touched -20 in his Approval Rating on April 11, but it was a quick downspike and rebound. The current decline seems to be settling into a new "trading range" -- the last six Approval Ratings (each of which are based on 3-day rolling averages) are -18, -18, -17, -19, -19, -20. This is Obama's worst multi-day stretch since March, and it threatens to become his worst since September, '10.
Down to -20? Sounds like it’s time for another vacation.
Gallup has what down to 39%? According to what I see Gallup has Hussein's approval at 45% - same as Rasmussen.
Oh no you don’t. You’re not going to get my hopes up only to see him poll twenty points higher tomorrow. Nope. Not gonna trust it this time.
Probably because of His
Thumbing his Nose at the War Powers Act.
Some of the The Libs are Livid about it
Libs at the Netroot Convention are really mad at Obama.
